    I used it for about 14 weeks all up. I started seeing improvement at about the 4, 5, 6 week mark. But at the end I was still getting P&Ps so I switched up my treatment. It's definitely worth...

    Are you using it for P&Ps? My dermatologist said it takes at least 12 weeks to see its full effect - although you should notice things working before then.

    No, still looking I'm afraid. I am experimenting with a few things at the moment: sulphur, clay masks and BHA exfoliant - I will report back if I find some repeatable success.

    Amen! Used to love my hot showers.

    The thing I miss most is quickly doing exercise, rushing home and jumping in the shower, and then straight out with friends... Would never dream of doing that...

    Sorry, haven't encountered those types of symptoms.

    Can you give a bit more description of what you are feeling? Do you mean inside your head like pressure in your skull / headachy feeling? Or do you mean more like a feeling in the sinuses near the...

    I think about the same things!

    I can only have one shower a day, as the hot water strips so much moisture from my skin.

    I think the best way to think about it is that your face washing...

    About 2.5 years now. I would say that I've got it largely under control, but it is by no means in 'remission' and I have to be very vigilant. For instance, three weeks ago my skin was really good -...

    My skin was very similar to yours in my early rosacea days. The small red bumps on your cheeks are classic rosacea papules.

    It sounds as though you are getting the active inflammation under...

    I realise my post above is pretty vague - but that's only because I'm still in the experimentation phase and I don't want to mislead anyone or claim that it has helped me until I am sure about it.

    I'm actually in the middle of experiment, supplementing with HCL and pepsin to see if low stomach acid relates to my rosacea flushing as I am convinced that my rosacea is gut-related.

    My dermatologist has always recommended putting the 'active product' (i.e. the drug or Rozex cream) on first, so it has the best chance to interact with the skin.

    Yeah, I know, they are expensive products - I think of it as the 'sensitive skin premium' ! You can pick up drugstore sunscreen for $8, but they always tend to aggravate my skin.

    Sometimes, weirdly, alcohol can actually improve my symptoms. For instance, if I have been drinking before I eat, I will not flush.

    I think triggers are personal. If you don't think that alcohol...

    Hi BusmanBill

    Yes, Rozex / metronidazole causes sun sensitivity so sun protection is a must when you are using it.

    I used Rozex gel for about 8 months or so and I was told by my dermatologist...
